Baylor moved ahead of Ohio State in the Associated Press media poll but not in the USA Today coaches poll. Both major polls were released Sunday. Alabama and Florida State held on to the top two spots in both polls. The No. 1 Crimson Tide (10-0) received 55 first-place votes while the No. 2 Seminoles (10-0) got the remaining five votes in the AP poll. In the coaches poll, Alabama earned 56 top votes while Florida State received the remaining six. Baylor (9-0) moved up from fourth to No. 3 after beating Texas Tech 60-34 and Ohio State (10-0) fell from third to No. 4 after holding off host Illinois 60-35 in the media poll. However, the Buckeyes and Bears held on to their previous spots in the coaches poll. Oregon (9-1) is fifth in both polls. Stanford took the biggest fall in the polls, tumbling from fifth to No. 12 in the coaches poll and to No. 10 in the AP poll following Saturday's 20-17 loss at Southern Cal. Miami and Texas fell out of the coaches poll and were replaced by No. 24 Duke and No. 25 Southern Cal. In the media poll, Texas, Miami and Georgia dropped out and were replaced by No. 23 Southern Cal, No. 24 Ole Miss and No. 25 Duke.
